My summer ride is....

Tamara (my cousin) did this quiz so I tried it...Kind of fun to see the answer..


Summer Ride is a Beetle Convertible

Fun, funky, and a little bit euro.
You love your summers to be full of style and sun!

Fairy Houses!!!!!

Ellie has been reading some Fairy books and we decided to make some nature Fairy houses. The girls really enjoyed making the houses and now we wait to see what Fairy will come to live in our Fairy houses. Ellie says "I do not believe in the tooth fairy but I believe in other fairies." She loves to pretend. Kind of fun to watch.

Another Ava interpretation....

The other day on the way to Ava's school I stopped to get coffee at DD. She asked me, "why do you get coffee". I replied, "Ava, I need something to get me going, I have to go shopping and get a lot of stuff done". Well, when Ellie got home from school she said to Ellie, "Ellie, do you know why mom drinks coffee, it's so that she can go shopping!"

I just don't know what.....

I've done this week!!!!! If you ask me about anything this week, I just don't know the answer. I have it all to blame on Paint. We decided to rip up the carpet in the bedrooms and put down wood floors so, since we are doing that why not paint the girls room. WELL, I made a vow a few years ago that I would NEVER EVER paint again. I think I forgot that little vow and am ready to re-new the vow. Actually, I have somewhat enjoyed the project but the fine tuning of the trim is a little tricky for me. I have now given up and Brad thinks that he can get the trim painted. We will see. I am anxious to see the finished product!!! I let the girls pick the colors for their rooms and Ava was able to get a comforter since, she was still sleeping in the nursery. Ellie got a new comforter for her last birthday. Anyway, I do complain but it is alot of fun and I look forward to posting the pictures. Someday!!!:)

And what have we done this week?
I went to the paint store EVERY day....Run and get stuff for the rooms.....paint and paint...laundry...cook.....groceries....clean the to the vet.....and i did get in Ladies night out and I can't complain....It is just that the joints are aching!!!

I loved this comment from Ava when I picked her up from school this week...

she said "My teacher didn't need to waste a clothes pin with putting my name on it because she isn't going to need to move it this year!"
They have a red light system and if you get in trouble then your clothes pin gets moved up; once you have been spoken to three times than you are in time out. Well, I hope she is right!:)
